The earliest inhabitants of Laconia, according to tradition, were the autochthonous Leleges.
The tribe is autochthonous, claiming descent from a son of the river Borysthenes Targitaos, who lived a thousand years before.
The lexicographers mention as characteristics of the Eupatridae that they are the autochthonous population, the dwellers in the city, the descendants of the royal stock.
It is not probable that the Eupatrid families were all autochthonous, even in the loose sense of that term.
